What started as a simple craft project for her family has become a labor of love for Robyn Rosenberger.

Her superhero capes have made the struggle with a disability or terminal illness much easier for a growing number of children nationwide.

They might not cure the disease, but they sure make the everyday struggle more bearable for children all over the country.

Robyn Rosenberger and a small staff of volunteers have handmade 1,700 superhero capes to date to boost the spirits of children who are battling a terminal illness or disability.
